Moira Hamilton

founder of Dance2Happy, lifelong dancer and formerly unhappy human.

Despite ticking all of the “success” boxes (Engineer, MBA from MIT, Senior Business Manager at Amazon AND mum to 2 kids), I was burnt out and suffering from chronic anxiety.

Trying Zumba® was my turning point — the switch that turned off the worrying voice in my brain.

It’s impossible to not be present in the moment when you’re practicing Zumba®. It helps me reduce negative emotions and release tension… no matter how bad a day I’ve had.

That’s why I started Dance2Happy — so that more people can discover the magic that dance and Zumba® can do for their mental health!


Hey, I’m Afaf Belcaid –

Instructors

The Dance2Happy instructors are powerhouses of happy energy.

Carefully chosen via our rigorous selection process, each of your instructors is certified and believes in the Dance2Happy ethos:

Focus on the mental health benefits of dance.
Create a safe and uplifting environment.
Empower our students to become self-sufficiently happy.

Founder of Dance2Happy, Afaf has gone from unhappy engineer to MUCH happier Zumba® instructor (and business owner)!

After teaching Zumba® classes at her children’s school it became clear that this was what she loved doing most… and so, Dance2Happy was born.

But rather than start yet another Zumba® class, Dance2Happy has a fierce and intentional focus on nurturing, improving and boosting your mood through the dance workouts.

A professional ballerina, a contemporary and a Latin dance instructor, Stefania is the kind of instructor who eats dance for breakfast. After being diagnosed with arthritis at the age of 19, Stefania went on to defy all the rules and expectations of what her body can or cannot do with arthritis.

Her contemporary dance class for dance2happy is specifically designed to release stiffness located in the joints and to broaden your range of movement while having a lots of laughs along the way. Stefania is passionate about empowering you to discover that living with a condition like arthritis does not mean that you should stop dancing or that your body cannot become stronger and more flexible.
